A tank holds water at 60 degrees C. The outside temp. is 10. The thickness of the walls is 12mm. My goal is to find the temp(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); onthe wall on the outside of the tank. I've got some values I don't know the english name for, but hopefully you'll understand by the units.

[tex]\lambda[/tex] for steel is [tex]50\frac{W}{mK}[/tex]

h between water and tank is [tex]2700\frac{W}{m^2K}[/tex]

h between air and tank is [tex]15\frac{W}{m^2K}[/tex]

How do I go about it?? I also need to find the effect loss...
